Jesus the Christ
The supreme purpose of man is to know God.
The greatest, highest and only privilege for man is to know Him.
Someone may ask, what is God like? What is the Father, Son and Holy Spirit like?
He is the most wonderful, most beautiful Person in the universe.
The only true God is an eternal mystery and revelation.
He is the great I AM.
He is so glorious, so wonderful, so powerful – and infinitely, eternally more – He is beyond human comprehension and words.
Those who find Him and make it to heaven will be in awe of Him, forever.
He is indescribable, incomprehensible, unfathomable.
He is omniscient, omnipotent, omnipresent.
He is life, love, eternity.
He is holy.
And infinitely more.
Yet, He has revealed Himself.
He is no longer a mystery.
He is available.
He is a present reality.
The only true God, the infinite, eternal mystery, can be summed up in one word, one name, one Person: Jesus.
Revelation 10:7, Matthew 13:11, Colossians 1:27, John 8:58, John 17:3, Psalm 139:6, Revelation 19:6, John 14:6, 1 John 4:8, Leviticus 19:2, John 8:58, Hebrews 1:3, Colossians 1:15
The only true God is an eternal revelation.
Man was born to know and fellowship with Him, forever.
He is eternity.
He is life.
He is existence.
He is love.
He is holy.
And infinitely, eternally more.
He has revealed Himself as the Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
His Son Jesus Christ is the revelation of God (John 1).
He is the image of the invisible God (Colossians 1:15).
He is the exact representation of God’s nature (Hebrews 1).
He is the great I AM (John 8:58).
Jesus is Son of God and . . . the Lord God Almighty.
God has chosen to give Himself to mankind.
He gives Himself through His Son Jesus Christ.
God has offered His glory to every person.
He and His glory are inexpressible.
He is so powerful, if someone receives Him, they will live forever.
God has chosen to give Himself in totality to every person, forever.
He has chosen to give every person the totality of all that they are.
He has chosen to believe in every person, more than they can comprehend.
All He asks is that they believe in Him.
He loves the world and every person, so much that He gave His Son Jesus Christ to die for the world.
There is one choice He cannot and will not make for a person: the choice to believe in Him.
John 3:16, John 17:22, Matthew 13:44-46, John 6:51, Psalm 139, John 3:17, Joshua 24:15
Jesus Christ is Lord.
He is the Son of God and the Lord God Almighty.
Those who know Him have eternal life, which is knowing the only true God and Jesus Christ whom He has sent (John 17:3).
They believe in Him through His Son Jesus.
If they continue on with Jesus, they will live forever.
Outside of Jesus, there is nothing.
Apart from Jesus, someone can do nothing.
Without Jesus, someone has nothing.
Even if they gain the whole world, they possess nothing.
Without Jesus, a person is spiritually dead.
If they die without Jesus Christ, they go to eternal death.
Eternal life continues forever in heaven, a place of absolute glory.
Heaven is God’s home, full of the glorious splendor of His majesty and infinitely more.
Those who know Jesus as Lord have the divine nature and life of God.
They have the supernatural, abundant, zoe life.
They have the Almighty God living in and through them – and all around them.
Those who know Jesus can accomplish things that will last forever. They can store up treasures in heaven. They can do even greater things than Jesus did (proclaim salvation).
Eternal life continues in heaven, which is filled with the glorious splendor of God’s majesty.
Eternal death continues forever in hell, the eternal fire prepared for the devil and his angels.
